100% renewable targets will require power storage to manage flows on the net
Electrolysers utilise these intermittent power flows to produce H2 gas from water
H2 gas can be stored in large quantities underground and transported via existing gas pipelines
H2 vehicles recharge faster and are more durable than battery powered transport
Growing H2 demand in industrial processes will reduce costs and increase supply

The European Regions and Municipalities Partnership for Hydrogen and Fuel Cells will hold its first General Assembly on October 15, 2008 during the launch event of the Joint Undertaking for Hydrogen and Fuel Cells in Brussels. The EHA is coordinating the secretariat of HyER (formerly HyRaMP). Regions active in hydrogen and fuel cell developments are invited to join the partnership. HyER (formerly HyRaMP)’s mission is to provide the European Regions and Municipalities with a representative body that can be coherent, distinguishable and influential towards the European Joint Technology Initiative for Fuel Cells and Hydrogen (FCH JTI) and all relevant stakeholders and decision makers at both public and private level. The Partnership allows its Members to play a key role in the implementation of strategies that aim for the uptake of FCH technologies and particularly that of the FCH JTI.
